There is a very long and sad story to how I got to this point with Best Buy but the last time I typed the whole situation it took at least an hour to write...anyways I have a new concern with Best Buy and the product that Geek Squad ordered for me.
On Saturday February 20th I brought in a desktop to try to fix what I thought was a small/easy problem and could be fixed on the spot, I was wrong. In short, I gave Best Buy my desktop to exchange for another desktop, trust me it is not as easy as it sounds, I had to wait two months to get to this point. Anyways the only way to buy this desktop from Best Buy is by going online and purchasing it off the official Best Buy website. Like I said I gave Geek Squad the desktop I was using and they now have it in there hands, they also ordered the desktop for me, to be specific -
Because Geek Squad/Best Buy ordered it for me I can not check the status of it, all I have been able to do is call Geek Squad and give them my order number and they tell all tell me the same thing, the order will not be fufilled until Sunday February 28th. I check my email everyday for any status updates with my new desktop and I got two emails from Best Buy on Tuesday February 23rd saying the following -
and then another email saying -
So now two days later I go back on BestBuy.com to take another look at my new desktops specs and I notice that the desktop is now labled as *Backordered*... I'm sure that is a good sign.
My question is since BB/GS ordered this desktop for me on the 20th and after getting the 2 emails confirming my order on the 23rd, am I at risk of getting a email from Best Buy saying my desktop is now on backorder and I will be getting it later then the 28th?? Keep in mind I was told by geeksquad in person that it was avaiable for in store pick up on the 28th.
Sadly this whole GS/BB experience has made me very paranoid about this backorder thing.

Also I should mention I was sent the order conformation email on the 20th after leaving the store. In total that is three emails I have recieved from Best Buy up until the 23rd and I have recieved a fourth email from Best Buy today saying -
Also like I said in my previous post just yesterday my desktop was labeled as backordered, yet I have not recieved an email saying that the delivery of my new desktop would be delayed because it is backordered, I hope/assume it has already been shipped and is on it's way or is already at my local Best Buy store ready for pick up.

Thanks for taking the time to post on our forum. I was disheartened to hear that you have gotten an update about your computer. I can totally see how that would be frustrating. I will be happy to help with what I can.
